Knock out Cup Preliminary Round

The U14 (Year 7 and 8) and U16 (Year 9) girl’s athletic teams took part in the Knock out Cup preliminary round of the Cardiff and Vale Knock out Cup.

Each pupil is only allowed a maximum of one track and one field event. It is a team competition, so in each event the team need the highest amount of points. In Cowbridge’s preliminary round they competed against Whitchurch, Mary Immaculate, Corpus Christi, Llanishen , St Cyres and Fitzalan. Bro Edern were also in the U14 competition. The first two teams qualified for the A Cup final and the third and fourth position the B Cup final. The finals will be held on Wednesday 17th June.

The very talented U16 team made up of all year 9 pupils came first winning eight of the 12 events.

The U14 team made up of year 7 and 8 pupils did really well with so many inexperienced athletes, coming 2nd overall behind Whitchurch.

Good luck to all the girls competing in the Cup finals next week.
